Environment UK South West Green Energy Awards 2012

Once again the south west’s commitment to renewable energy is made clear as the Green Energy Awards receive 135 nominations - more than double the amount of entries compared to last year.

The South West Green Energy Awards are organised by Regen SW. Now in its tenth year, Regen SW, the south west’s centre of sustainable energy expertise, continue to promote the many positives that renewable energy can provide. Hosting the awards provides Regen SW with the perfect platform to showcase the pioneering work that the region produces. The awards feature six categories, allowing the variety of innovation, collaboration and good working practices to be recognised within the sector.

The shortlisted nominees (listed below) will now go through to the final stage of judging, where an expert panel of judges will carefully select this years overall winners and runners up. With so many quality entries to sort through, this years judging will prove difficult.

Merlin Hyman, chief executive of Regen SW, said: “I am so pleased to see the popularity of the awards grow at such a pace. With so many fantastic nominations the judges will have a difficult task in selecting the winners and runners up. What is really clear from these nominations is that the south west continues to lead the sector, delivering innovation in product development, service offered and collaboration between people, local authorities and organisations.”

The winners and runners up of the awards will be announced at the South West Green Energy Awards, held at the Assembly Rooms in Bath on Tuesday 20 November. Spaces are still available.
